I was exactly the same. A friend lent me the DVD and kept telling me just to ignore what it's about and give it a go. But it took me ages to get around to it cos I was just never in the mood for a film about magicians. And it is very good.

EDIT: Christ I've really overhyped that now. Don't expect the greatest film you'll ever see, it isn't, but as an out of the blue little Hollywood gem, brilliantly written, amazingly shot (to put it mildly), and very well acted, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I thought the dialogue was awful in Gravity, and the characters were completely the most run of the mill hollywood BS you could imagine.

The dialogue was simple and a bit pulpy, same with the characters, but I thought they were pitched perfectly for the film. I absolutely love it but I've spoken to a few people who share your view. It may be a bit of a marmite movie.

Not always sure what I think about it overall but if nothing else it looks gorgeous.

Seems to be a darling of a lot of critics but it's dated horribly now.

It's a very well made movie, looks and feels very much like a M. Haneke work.
Everyday live of a paedophile who keeps a young boy locked in his cellar, rapes and tortures him...

DEVILS AT THE DOORSTEP

 


this movie is amazing! it's advertised as a comedy but it's no comedy in spite of having some hysterically funny sequences-- most of the movie is insanely funny actually. but it's not a comedy--it can get very fucking dark and disturbing. regardless, you need to watch this. yes, you!

on the surface it's the story of a chinese village under japanese occupation in the final days of the 2nd sino-japanese war. which is why it was made in black and white-- to resemble old war movies. but there is so much going on here…

great screenplay/characters/camera work/pacing/dialogue (i mean, subtitles, but still)... really an amazing movie.

it's surprising that i had never heard of jiang wen. you probably hadn't either, but you have to watch this.

if you get the disc with sodherberg's intro definitely skip that because the sucka will spoil the movie with his spoilers. watch that thing afterwards for some interesting tidbits though.

i remember the interviews when all of that came out. i like salma hayek-- she's hot, smart, funny, and impervious to the passage of time.

movie looked a bit ultraviolent.

Very violent, but not in any kind of interesting way. I enjoyed it and for such a long film it wasn't boring at all, But maybe it was a bad film for Oliver Stone to direct. I hate to say it but Tarantino would've been in his absolute element with it.

Somewhere on this thread I complained about the violence in SAVAGES. Just gave me a slightly queasy feeling.

Watched AMADEUS after who knows how long. Has anyone NOT seen this movie?

It was sillier than I remembered. Kinda soap operaish. But that last scene with Salieri helping dying Mozart write Requiem is still great.

Too bad it never happened. Like 3/4 of the shit in this movie. Absolutely slanderous toward Salieri, who was cool to Mozart, Beethoven AND Schubert. Quite a guy. As an old man, he did suffer from mental illness and slashed his throat, and he did confess to killing Mozart, but by poison and no one at all took him seriously. Because he was sick.

Taking advantage of a feeble old man for the sake of a story is pretty low.

not very effective as a documentary since the dude won't say anything about himself, but cool songs and photography watched cisco pike after and it was pretty good

High and Low was not liked by me when I was 18, but I watched it again around age 32 and i found it awesomely gripping.

Memento - this movie is still creepy to me. Carrie Ann Moss exemplifies this the most. it's also mildly funny with the confusion. holy shit!!

Basic Instinct - never knew this film was a dark comedy. holy shit!!
